A shout out to the teams in UHN Digital, Synapse and all of the individuals working hard to bring on UHN's new health information system.

December 1 is World Aids Day. We remember the many lives lost as a consequence of the HIV pandemic. We also give thanks to the clinical and research teams at Toronto General's Immunodeficiency Clinic for their tremendous work over the past 30 years to improve the quality and quantity of life for persons living with HIV. The dedicated clinic provides outstanding care to more than 1500 active clients and has a multidisciplinary team that deals not only with medical, but also psychosocial support. Our internationally renowned research team has participated in over 300 clinical trials of new agents and management strategies that have transformed HIV from an acute devastating illness to a chronic infection. Now many persons living with HIV can be successfully managed with a single pill per day, and life expectancy is approaching that of the general population. The battle is not over and we continue to work to evolve new treatment strategies, and to combat the stigma and discrimination still impacting those living with HIV.

Have a good week,Kevin
